The jackhammer and backhoe noises ceased momentarily. Last July, Cyrielle and Matthias, a couple from Toulouse aged in their thirties, had been part of the nightmare he was living because of the construction of their neighbor when they had just bought their house. located in the Lafourguette district in Toulouse. On the land next door, a professional doctor has three buildings built. The one located in the center, declared as a “workshop” was built by leaning directly against the wall of the house of the couple from Toulouse. Only a few centimeters of polystyrene separated them. Finding the situation simply scandalous, the couple decides to write a letter to the attention of their neighbor to express their dissatisfaction. A missive that only got a negative response. “He told us that he was at home and in order, that he had all the authorizations”, Cyrielle explained to us last July. Comments confirmed by the person we had also contacted.
Very angry, the young couple decided last August to use the hard way. Advised by Audrey Marty, a construction lawyer in Toulouse, they asked for an amicable expert to report on the situation. A ray of hope for the couple. On site, the expert therefore found the concrete block walls dressed by their neighbor. “He noted in particular a significant humidity on a gable of the house as well as other irregularities”, slips the lawyer.
After this meeting, the lawyer then assigned the neighbor, the notary, the seller of the house as well as the real estate agent. During a court hearing at the end of August, she obtained the suspension of the work of the neighbor. “It’s a great victory, we got this suspension because I put forward abnormal neighborhood disturbances”, further notes Me Marty. On September 21, a forensic expert was appointed by the president of the tribunal and visited the scene. This meeting brought together all the protagonists of the file. “It’s a relaxation, for years, we have been waiting for things to move, for our voice to be heard, there finally, we are heard”, testifies Cyrielle who does not hide her exhaustion in relation to this situation which has lasted since she moved into this house almost three years ago.
Contacted by us, the neighbor’s lawyer, Me Thalamas did not respond to our requests. Now, the couple from Toulouse impatiently attend the results of the legal expertise. The appointment is fixed at the beginning of next year. Until then, the wall erected just behind their house will remain as it is. Since they reported their hell on social networks, a thousand people welcomed this young couple. They regularly receive messages of support to keep them going. “When you want to give up, people encourage you, it’s essential”, slips Cyrielle while thanking those who accept her approach.
